I just got a package in the mail the other day: three copies of a book called Regrets Only. It's a collection of poems.
Why do I have three? I believe that was my payment for the two 'pomes' I have in this anthology. But I forgot all about it. So I checked my submission tracker.
Back in 2003, I sent three poems to Little Pear Press. Around a year later (late 2004 or early 2005), I found out Little Pear Press wanted two of them to put in a book. Since I'm not much of a poet, I didn't shop the poems around to anyone else, and I was happy to have my work accepted.
And here we are, three years after I initially sent in the poems, with a lovely little book to put on my shelf. Thanks, Little Pear Press!
